Fantastic story with beautiful vignettes
This story is about two young American sisters - Bessie Alden and Mrs. Westgate - in the late 1800s. The women entertain two young British men - Lord Lambeth and Mr. Beaumont - at the eldest sister's house in Boston and then travel to England. While in England they visit the men, especially Lord Lambeth.
This story does a wonderful job of illustrating the cultural differences between the British and the Americans at that time, as well as describing the relationships between men and women of society.
The book itself is quite beautiful with the artwork surrounding the text on many of the pages.
